Seeking to make your marriage closer?

For young adults preparing for their marriage or wanting to deepen their marriage, here is a short list of resources recommended by Scott Seibert, director of the Archdiocese’s Office of Marriage and Family Life.

“Amoris Laetitia” (“The Joy of Love”). “Pope Francis’ apostolic exhortation on marriage and family life is a great summary of the Church’s understanding of the truth and beauty of marriage and family life,” Seibert notes.

Head and Heart by Katie Warner. “Provides reflections on spiritual leadership of husbands and wives as well as practical tools for leading and getting our loved ones towards heaven.” 

Three Secrets to Holiness in Marriage by Dan and Amber Dematte. “A 33-day at-home retreat for couples that will strengthen your marriage, your relationship with God, and improve your walk with Jesus. It’s a book with many prayers and practical tips.” 

“For Your Marriage” website by U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB). “A great website with resource lists, blogs, reflections and more to help you enrich your marriage and family life.

“Marriage: Unique for a Reason”, website by USCCB. “Offers resources to assist with the education and catechesis of Catholics on why marriage is unique, and why it should be promoted and protected as the union of one man and one woman. This website is full of compelling videos and a companion guide for group discussion/reflection.” †
